By FindLaw Staff on December 30, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's sentence for conspiracy to engage in the unlicensed dealing of firearms is affirmed where: 1) because defendant did not object at the time of sentencing that the prosecutor's remarks were in breach of the plea agreement, such a claim was not preserved for appeal; and 2) the terms of the plea agreement did not preclude the government from making a good faith argument that defendant did not satisfy one or more of the conditions entitling him to a downward departure recommendation.
